5 links

Some essential new links to draw your attention towards at this rude hour.

First up a newish jazz blog that's up there with Orgy and Swami, My Jazz World. Grabbed some Herbie Mann and some Gabor Szabo already but there's a tonne of tasty stuff here. And all at 320 too!!

A very interesting newish blog called 'Whenever We Bone I Have To Fake An Orgasm' Its a bit low on information for me but there's a seriously diverse array of stuff here including William S Burroughs and Manuel Göttsching.

A new database of mixes I found which looks like (fingers crossed!) a permanent source of direct downloads of Gilles Peterson's radio show. You'll find him by clicking 'Jazz' on the right hand side of the screen. There's bound to be other good stuff going up here - Solid Steel and Jazzanova for starters...

Now, I must confess a point of confusion in my recent posts. I have been crediting MixesDB with a little bit more than he's / they've been providing as I got confused between him / them and a forum where he / they post. The forum is obviously an underground ting. The title of it appears to be "livesets dj sets techno house trance download carl cox mixes - free music non commercial Forums". I'm going to list it as LandDownUnder as that's what's in the web address. It is an amazing resource, people upping both recent and vintage sets of all kinds of house and dance DJs constantly. A search for Dave Mothersole last night threw up 14 threads, for instance. Wow!

And here is Mixes DB. Searches for Moodymann, Future Sound Of London, Fila Brazilia, Osunlade, Andrew Weatherall and Swayzak (off the top of my head) will throw you some tasty.
